Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water until tender, 10 minutes or so. Drain and leave to cool whilst you prepare the other ingredients.
Now bring a small saucepan of water to the boil, add the runner beans and broad beans and cook for 3 minutes, add the peas and cook for a further 2 minutes, drain into the colander with the potatoes.
Make the dressing by simply mixing the olive oil, lemon and Dijon mustard, season with salt and milled pepper. Take a bowl and toss the potatoes and vegetables in the dressing.
Take a large platter plate, cut the baby gem into quarters and arrange onto the plate. Scatter over the vegetables. Tear the mozzarella over the salad and do the same with the Parma ham. Finally sprinkle over the mint and pour over any remaining dressing and serve.
If you don’t want to use Parma ham, then deli ham works just as well.
Other vegetables that be used are, courgettes, green beans, asparagus.

"This is one of my favourite summer salads. It’s a great addition to any lunch, especially a picnic. The potatoes taste amazing tossed with asparagus in the creamy lemon and avocado mix, and then sprinkled with chives and spring onions. It’s simple but delicious! I can’t wait to hear what you all think of it."
